iMatSci Innovation Showcase: Innovation in Materials Science

Make a Difference…
Become a SPONSOR of the iMatSci Innovation Showcase!

Attendees talk to an innovator about his products while other attendees mingle in the background.Launched at the 2014 MRS Fall Meeting, the iMatSci Innovator Showcase is a growing program that provides a platform for technology leaders at universities, research labs and start-up companies to demonstrate the practical applications of their innovative, materials-based technologies.

The goal of this program is to convene innovators, industry leaders and investors in one location to spur collaboration that accelerates the adoption of new materials technologies for real-world applications.

The iMatSci Innovation Showcase is designed to exhibit technologies that have not yet been productized but where there is a working prototype or evidence of a repeatable process. The entities behind these innovations will generally be pre-revenue and seed-stage innovators that are actively seeking partners, funding or avenues for moving towards product commercialization; however iMatSci will also consider showcasing innovative technologies that are emerging from an existing corporate entity.

This dynamic event presents sponsors with a prime networking opportunity to reach a mix of meeting attendees, established companies, startups and investors, and demonstrates your support and commitment to the materials community. 

Sponsorship Benefits

In addition to the various packages outlined in the Sponsorship Brochure, all partners will receive recognition in the MRS Fall Meeting Program & Exhibit Guide, website, mobile Meeting App, onsite slideshows, pre-event promotions and on signage displayed at iMatSci. Sponsors will also have the ability to provide literature for display at our Corporate Sponsors tables in the Meeting Registration area.
